TOMI was created as a core unit of the National Biophotonics and Imaging Platform Ireland ( NBIPI); the mission of the TOMI laboratory is to promote better healthcare through research and advancements in biophotonics technology.  Our aim is to develop inexpensive, point-of-care tools which will reduce the incidence and mortality of diseases of the microcirculation and cancer via early detection.

STARSTEM

Tissue Optics and Microcirculation Imaging (TOMI) group at the School of Physics,  NUI Galway will lead a consortium, who have been awarded a €6 million European grant, to develop a novel imaging platform for regenerative medicine. This new project, ‘STARSTEM’ will allow researchers and eventually, hospital doctors, to detect and measure the healing effects of novel stem cell therapies, even where they occur under the skin.
